77. Salvation Is a Big Word

1
Salvation is a big word,
 
But I am not too small
 
To know Christ died on Calvary,
 
From sin to save us all.
 
For when a sinner trusts Him
 
To save him from his sin,
 
The Saviour comes with peace and joy
 
To dwell his heart within.
 
Salvation! Salvation!
 
The gift of God is free;
 
For Jesus died for sinners,
 
Even you and me.
2
The Bible clearly tells us
 
That all are lost in sin;
 
That not by any goodness
 
Can we salvation win.
 
If I could have but one verse,
 
John three sixteen would do:
 
God loved the world and gave His Son
 
To die for me and you.
3
Salvation is forever,
 
The Word of God is plain;
 
A sheep found by the Shepherd
 
Cannot be lost again!
 
For "they shall never perish,"
 
None plucks them from His hand;
 
Though they are only happy when
 
They follow His command.
